THAT is the reason I love XP and hate Microsoft.
Um... no. If that were the case linux would be number one if not atleast very competitive in the enthusiast gaming crowd. You might get better performance in OpenGL games- but very few at that. Linux has a very small game base, and it is horrible with DX based games. From a gamers' perspective Linux sucks all the way around. For the enthusiast that doesn't game much, Linux kicks-@$$. Me, I love kubuntu- but I also love Vista far more.

Let me know how well Crysis runs on Linux once it comes out...
